Howard College 

Volume XXV 




Among us there is a man famous in many pro- 
fessions — for his music, compositions, artistry, and 
professorship. No idle boast for Professor Paul de 
Launay possesses as rewards, the title of 'Officer 
d'Academie, the Grand Prix, and First Prize, from 
Paris Society of Artists. He is the recipient of prizes 
from contests in music and art. A publishing house 
in London, England, has introduced many of his 
compositions for piano, voice, organ, and chamber 
music. Born and educated in Paris, France, the son 
of an American Baptist minister, Professor de 
Launay has served Howard College in the capacity 
of director of music and art and professor of French 
since the year of 1919. The many graduates will 
always have a pleasant memory of marching down 
the aisle to the sweet strains from the mighty organ, 
rendered by the master hands of our beloved pro- 
fessor. To the composer of Howard's Alma Mater, 
our French and music professor, we deign to dedicate 
the Entre Nous of 1939, to Professor Paul de

AIN, Ethiopia, Science Hall, and Sherman Oak, these 
are the views which make up Howard College. Then we see 
the familiar faces of our Professors in the registrar's office 
reporting the absences of those students who unfortunately 
failed to attend classes. Dean Burns and Dr. Chapman off 
together for lunch; Mrs. Griffith with that ever-willing atti- 
tude; Dr. Brakefield hearing from his many students; Dr. 
Thomas always attending his classes, and then we see Pro- 
fessor Causey giving of his valuable time to students who 
think they have a problem which cannot be solved. Then 
our last peep is in the library, where we see many of the 
faculty members, and students, relaxing while reading some 
of the works from Aristotle, Shakespeare, or maybe an article 
on the world problem of today — this is college life. 




Since June, 1932, Dr. T. V. Neal has served 
Howard College as president. During this 
term the college has been beset by difficulties, 
and has also had its share of prosperity. De- 
spite the depression the Science Hall has been 
completed, the library has been remodeled, en- 
larged, and refurnished, and several sorority 
lodges erected. Dr. Neal has sent in his resig- 
nation to take effect June 30, 1939. His 
friends hope that his new work may give full 
scope to his characteristic energy, and resource- 






He is the modern interpreter of Shakespeare, 
who through his own knowledge and under- 
standing of this genius, implants within his 
students the desire to obtain for themselves a 
like knowledge and understanding of Shakes- 
peare. It is a privilege to be enrolled as a 
member of his overflowing classes and to par- 
take of his graciously offered information and 
wisdom. He is tolerant of the misdemeanors 
of others but a strict taskmaster to himself in 
his own efforts in building and enlarging the 
scope of learning for his students. May the 
students who have rested under your influence 
and tutelage repay their debt of gratitude to 
you by living a richer and more useful life! 



Mrs. Obenchain besides being an advisor of 
girls finds time to teach several courses in 
Sociology. There the many students hear one 
who is vitally interested in the welfare of our 
fellow man. After hearing these lectures we 
can easily understand why she is a Dean of 
Women. Mrs. Obenchain gives advice to 
many girls in an understanding way, helping 
to solve their many problems. We see Mrs. 
Obenchain in many different phases of college 
life: hurrying to her class room to impart 
knowledge; back to her office to advise some 
bewildered student; and a gracious hostess at 
some afternoon tea. She is an epitaph that any 
young girl should be. She is a model worthv 
of imitation by the young women of Howard

The Science Hall, a familiar landmark on 
the campus, contains departments pertain- 
ing to this field of study. They are the 
Pharmacy, Physics, Chemistry, and Biol- 

ogy Departments. There is also a small 
auditorium where outstanding lecturers 
speak; moving pictures, slides, and speci- 
mens are shown to the students of science.

The passing of Harold Dunnam C'38, is here- 
in commemorated by his many friends in this 
final tribute. During his undergraduate days 
his scholastic abilities were acknowledged by 
his election to the professional educational 
honor fraternity, the Kappa Phi Kappa, and 
by his election to Who's Who Among Stu- 
dents in American Universities and Colleges. 
In following Shakespeare's "Four Stages of 
Man's Life," he as editor of the 1938 Entre 
Nous, made a pleasing success of his endeav- 
ors. Since his graduation from Howard Col- 
lege he had been confined to his home in 
serious illness, which led to his decease on 
January 30, 1939. 


i HE four following classes represented are the 
Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen. On 
these pages are listed their honors presented to them 
during their student days at Howard College. The 
classes consist of various types of students, the honor 
student and those less gifted with knowledge and 
initiative. The beauties rest side by side with the 
beast. We present them to you in their entire

± EATURED in the following sections are the two 
most popular athletic activities at Howard College, 
football and basketball. The heroes that enabled us 
to win over our opponents in that football classic, 
the Howard-Southern game, are pictured here along 
with the stellar basketball teams of near champions. 
We laud the past efforts and successes of all par- 
ticipants of athletic activities and hope for greater 
successes in the future.

The Howard student body was lead in yells 
under the capable leadership of Jimmie Redd, 
head cheerleader, with Margaret Rurford, 
Jappie Bryant, Gordon Berry, Billie Gwin, 
and Joe GompertS as assistants. 



The coaching staff of Howard is consid- 
ered one of the best, having as head football 
and basketball coach William H. Bancroft, 
better known to the Howard students as 
"Coach Bill." He has been coach since his 
graduation from Howard in 1928. Coach 
Bill was assistant football and freshman bas- 
ketball coach for seven years, being made 
head coach and athletic director upon the 
resignation of "Shorty" Propst in 1935. 
During his four years at Howard, Coach 
Bill has led the Bulldogs to the Dixie Con- 
ference Championship twice. And this year 
he led the Bulldogs to one of the greatest 
victories of the season, that of winning over 
our rival Birmingham-Southern 25-0. 

Assisting Coach Bill was Coach Raymond 
Davis, known to the students as "Coach 
Ray." He was one of the best centers while 
playing football at Howard, and now known 
as one of the best line coaches in the South. 


Coach Ray has recently resigned from How- 
ard, accepting a position at Louisiana Tech. 
Coach Jim Stewart will resign his duties as 
freshman coach and become line coachman 
for the Bulldogs. 

The Howard College Bulldogs captained 
by Herman Hodges and alternated by Boyce 
Stone is herein congratulated for their splen- 
did football season. Even more important 
than winning is the sportsmanship with 
which they conduct themselves on and off 
the gridiron. Howard's scrappy Bulldogs 
opened their 1938 football schedule against 
the Mississippi State Maroons at Starkvillc, 
Mississippi. The Bulldogs held the Southern 
team scoreless during the first half and only 
after the second half had begun did the 
Staters score. The score was 19-0 in favor of 
Mississippi, but the Bulldogs were to be 
praised for their excellent play. They had 
the ball on State's 2-yard line when the 
whistle blew ending the first half. In the 
Howard offense Clyde White and Joe Gann 
were the outstanding stars, while all the line- 
men were playing good ball and opening wide 
holes for the offense. On the Saturday fol- 
lowing the Mississippi State game the Bull- 
dogs journeyed down to play the Alabama 
Crimson Tide at Tuscaloosa. The Tide was 
too much for Howard, and the score was 
34-0 in favor of Alabama. Alabama made 
whole team substitutions, and the so-called 
second team outdid the first team. How- 
ard's scoring efforts were bottled up suffi- 
cient'y to hold them within midfield most a'' 
the afternoon. The Howard line played goo"! 
ball again and George Daugherty and Bruce 
L'ttle averaged 37 yards in 1 1 punts. 



As manager, "Cheese" Turner is seen here faithfully keeping 
the pigskin ready for the Bulldogs

man Hodges, Joe Gann, Jimmy Carter, Otis Hardy, Bruce

Hopkins, Bill Ross, Pat Courington, Bill Hammond, Talmadge 
Tuggle, Nathan Schenker, J. L. Brock, Charles Douglas, 
George Daugherty, Irby Seigler. 

Howard next met Western Kentucky State 
Teacher's College, and the inefficiency to hold 
the ball while running plays cost the Dogs 
the game. Western won 6-0, but Howard 
lost numerous scoring chances by fumbles. 
There was a total of 8 fumbles made by the 
Bulldogs. The team as a whole showed good 
spirit in this game and had tough luck in 
losing such a hard-fought game. Howard 
next played Chattanooga in Chattanooga 
and the Bulldogs really outplayed the Mocca- 
sins although they lost 13-6. Howard dom- 
inated the whole ball game, even though they 
lost. Time and time again they marched 
deep into Chattanooga territory only to be 
held for downs or penalized. Chattanooga 
made 8 first downs to 9 for Howard. Yards 
gained were 239 for Chattanooga and 396 
for Howard. The outstanding Bulldogs were 
Windham and Daugherty in the backfield 
and Captain Hodges and Schenker and 
Tuggle in the line. For Chattanooga Terry, 
Orend and Barbee were the outstanding men.

There are nine of these outstanding 
Bulldogs who have made history for 
their Alma Mater. They have taken off 
their football togs, never to wear again 
on the gridiron for Howard, but in the 
minds of the many students they will 
wear their togs forever. Gentlemen, I 
give you Herman Hodges, captain of the 
1939 Bulldogs. Herman has starred at 
Howard for three years at the end posi- 
tion. In his junior year he was alter- 
nate captain of the team and in his 
senior he was one of the outstanding per- 
formers. He was voted on the second 

All-Conference team. Boyce Stone, al- 
ternate captain, was one of the sturdy 
linemen who made the Howard forewall 
famous for its staunch defense and its 
hole opening on the offense. He will be 
sorely missed next year. Hugh Smith, 
another lineman whose name will always 
be remembered for his swell performance 
against the Panthers. Hugh was a reg- 
ular performer at a guard position. Joe 
Gann, first string quarterback, led the 
team while on the field. His general- 
ship was always excellent and his quick 
thinking saved the team many times dur-

ing the season. He did most of the 
kicking for the extra point and led inter- 
ference for the ball carriers. Clyde 
White, star halfback, was All-Confer- 
ence his junior year, but injuries kept 
him on the sidelines most of his senior 
year. However, when able to play, he 
was one of the best backs on the squad. 
His performance against Southern was 
an excellent day's work and will long be 
remembered. Harley Hopkins, sensa- 
tional halfback, returned to his form his 
senior year and led the Bulldogs to a 
very successful season. He was injured 
his junior year, but his sophomore and 
senior years Harley was an outstanding 
yard gainer and scorer and was honor- 
able mention for little Ail-American this 

year. Nathan Schenker, Howard's All- 
Dixie Conference for two years and All- 
S. I. A. A. on the second team, was 
without doubt the leader of the Howard 
line. This 215-pound lineman will be 
hard to replace next year. James Carter 
was Howard's reliable understudy at the 
quarterback position. Quick to figure 
out the opposition's defense, this man 
was rushed into the game to help the 
offense. Jimmie was a good blocker and 
a good signal caller. Bill Ross was the 
only senior center on the club, and his 
experience helped to steady the club more 
than any other factor. His good per- 
formance against Southern was his best 
of the year. A big husky player like Ross 
will be missed next year. 

Goldman, Schenker, Smith, Golson, Stone, Tuggle, Hodges, 
Crawford, Daugherty, Gann, Windham. 


Outstanding were the plays made by both 
teams this season in which they exhibited 
power, speed and defensive strength. It was 
in the Spring Hill victory that Sam Gold- 
man, 200 pounds, from Cleveland, Ohio, 
made the first touchdown, and George 
Daughcrty. 180 pounds, Cleveland, Ohio, 
made the second touchdown. As tackles, 
Nathan Schenker, 200 pounds, from Cleve- 
land, Ohio, and Boyce Stone, 184 pounds, 
from Albertville, were great. Gordon Gol- 
son, 195 pounds, was the starting center. 
Known for his splendid blocking was Jo? 
Gann, 165 pounds, from Birmingham. T. 
A. Windham, 168 pounds, from Hartford, 
exhibited some fine punting during the sea- 
son. From Oak Grove comes Talmadge 
Tuggle, 220 pounds, tackle, which Howard 
proudly boasts. Hugh Smith, 163 pounds, 
guard from Birmingham, and Herman 
Hodges, 175 pounds, from Hartford, were 
two of the outstanding seniors, who helped 
make up this first string eleven. It is the 

second team which cause the members of the 
first team to put out in order to keep their 
places. Willard Huckaby, 185 pounds, from 
Lafayette, will be captain of the 1940 "Bull- 
dogs." Others on the second team were: 
Auxford Watkins, 195 pounds, Birmingham, 
end; Charlie Davis, 175 pounds, tackle, Bir- 
mingham; Kilburn Elrod, 185 pounds, guard, 
Douglas; Bill Ross, 170 pounds, center, Ro-

Look at that scoreboard . . . that's just 
what everyone was saying, when those touch- 
downs were being piled up for Howard. Once 
again the Panthers and the Bulldogs met for 
the annual Battle-of-the-Marne, in which the 
Bulldogs successfully and overwhelmingly 
won. Just take another look at that score- 

board, 25-0. After that one point loss last 
year, those Bulldogs were determined, if it 
was a whole year later. Rain . . . Cloudy 
. . . Cold . . . Yes, but who would mind a 
little thing like that, when dear old Howard 
was marching on to Victory? Howard was 
kept rather back on its heels during the first 
quarter, but after that was when the fun 
began. Howard thus took the ball on its 
own 28 just as the second quarter began 
and drove 72 yards to a first touchdown in 
10 plays. Daugherty carried the ball eight 
times, and on his last carry broke through 
the line and then away from a mass of Pan- 
thers who seemed to have him in tow to run 
24 yards across the goal. The second touch- 
down, fashioned on the fourth play after 
the return to the field following the half in- 
termission was much simpler in the reacquisi- 
tion. The kick-off was returned to the How- 
ard 39 and Daugherty tore off 12 yards on 
the first play. No gain, four yards, both by 
Daugherty, and Joe Gann called a pass. 
White threw it 29 yards or so to Hodges, 
who was speeding down the left sideline. The 


Bulldog captain caught it on the dead run 
just beyond two Panthers and sprinted on to 
an added six points for the Bulldogs. The 
White-Crawford aerial combination worked 
for a 39-yard score early in the fourth quar- 
ter, running the count to 18 to 0. Daugherty 
again got away, breaking through a wide gap 
in the Panther line for 78 yards, making his 
second and the Bulldog's fourth touchdown. 

Several other outstanding players on the 
Howard eleven were Nathan Schenker and 
Willard Huckaby, the tackles who exhibited 
some fine playing against their rivals. Each 
of the Bulldogs is to be CONGRATU- 
LATED on his fine playing, in showing the 
many fans that they were the masters of the 
gridiron at Legion Field. Truly a heart 
breaker for Birmingham-Southern.

The Howard College Bullpups, under the 
able coaching of Coach Stuart and Snell, 
had a most successful season, winning four 
games and losing only one. The Bullpups 
opened the season with the Mississippi Frosh. 
in which thev met their onlv defeat. 6-0. 
The Chattanooga Rats were licked. 6-0. The 
Pups next met the Jacksonville Frosh, plav- 
ing one of the best games of the season, and 
coming through with a 26-0 victory. St. 
Bernard bowed to the Howard Freshman. 
13-0. Then came another thriller, when in 
their last game the Bullpups came out vic- 
torious over their arch-rivals, the Southern 
Panthers. 14-6. Outstanding Pups in this 

game were. Kennie Baker, end; Durwood 
Williamson, halfback: Darse Faughender. 
center: and Dan Zobroskv. fullback. Other 
members of the first-string eleven are "Fats"

lcv. guard: L. B. Riddle, tackle: Carl Fo'd^. 
guard, and Frank Havnes. fullback. Each 
plavcr is to be congratulated upon his fine 
plaving and willing spirit. 



The Bullpups again exhibited some fine 
playing, when they won 10 basketball games 
out of 16. They showed superior floor work 
over Warrior, gaining a 56-34 victory, and a 
60-49 victory over the Sixth Ave. Preds. The 
Pups won two games over Tarrant City 43- 
28, 47-32, and two over Stockham, 42-32 and 
52-38. They won one game each over Phil- 
lips, 33-29; Hokes Bluff, 49-26; Birmingham- 
Southern, 33-31, and Barber's Dairy, 39-35. 
The Bullpups lost one game to Barber's 
Dairy, 29-31 and one to Ensley, 41-51. Two 
losses went to the strong Alabama team, 21- 

40 and 31-51. The Pups, in the last two 
games of the season lost by a close margin to 
their cross-town rivals Birmingham-Southern, 
36-42 and 30-32. There was some valuable 
material among this group of Bullpups, ma- 
terial that may graduate into the varsity next 
year. This deserving team was composed of: 
David Drake, guard; Orville "Fats" Hause, 
guard; Billie Gwin, forward; Durwood Wil-

This is reason number one why Howard had such a successful 
basketball team this season. Coach Jim Stuart is seen here 
giving instructions to four outstanding Bulldogs. Left to 
right, Coach Stuart, Clyde White, "Cheese" Turner, Dave 
Telford, Eddie Welch. 


The Howard Basketball team had one of 
the best seasons in the history of the school 
when it won 24 games and lost 5. This is 
an outstanding record because some of the 
best teams in the South were played. They 
were the University of Alabama, Mississippi 
State College, Mississippi College, the Cel- 
tics, Jacksonville State Teachers College, 
and Millsaps. Howard lost one game to Mis- 

sissippi State, one to Jacksonville and one to 
the Celtics by a two-point margin. Alabama 
defeated the Bulldogs by 8 points, and Mis- 
sissippi College defeated them by 10 points. 
However, Howard revenged the losses to Mis- 
sissippi State and Jacksonville by defeating 
them by narrow margins in the other games. 
Mississippi College was defeated twice by the 
Bulldogs, but the Bulldogs lost the final game

in the tournament to them and thereby mak- 
ing Mississippi College the Dixie Conference 
champions and Howard the runner-up. In 
league competition Howard had an un- 
equaled record. The Bulldogs won 14 games 
and lost one. These wins included 2 over 
Mississippi College, 2 from Millsaps, 3 from 
Birmingham-Southern, 2 from Chattanooga, 
2 from Southwestern, 2 from Mercer, and 
one from Loyola. The only loss was to Mis- 
sissippi College. In the "Big Five" race the 
Bulldogs ran roughshod over all competition, 
winning 8 games and losing none. The Big 
Five trophy now belongs to Howard and the 
City College trophy rests beside it because 
the Southern Panthers fell three times before 
the Bulldogs in quick succession. Howard 
was easily the winner in all three games. 

Other wins for this outstanding team in- 
cluded Northeast Center Louisiana Tech 
and Southern University from Lakeland, 
Florida. The team this past year depended 
on Baker and Goldman to get the ball from 
the backboards and get it up the floor to 
Telford, Burks, and Turner. This is known 
as the fast break — then if the basket wasn't 
made the Bulldogs set up under their basket 
and worked out plays given them by the 
coach. This system led to the most success- 
ful season in years at Howard. Coach Jim 
Stuart did one of the best coaching jobs in 
the history of Howard when he led his 
charges through 24 victories out of the 29 
games played. Coach Stuart and his players 
are to be congratulated on such a fine basket- 
ball team.

Dave Telford, senior guard, 
had the best year of his career 
when he scored 240 points. Tel- 
ford was once p'aced on the 
All-Conference team, and this 
vear he was an unanimous choice 
for All-Conference first team. 
A'ternate Captain Ben Browdv. 
although not p'aying all the 
time, saw plenty of servic<\ 
Mrnv will remember his sensa- 
tional shot against Mississ : ppi 
College, and always this player 
was ready to pull Howard out of 
a tight spot. Howard Burks was 
the main cog in the Howard 
offense, and was the leading 
scorer with a total of 300 points 
for the year. He is an All- 
Conference man in his junior 
year and also honorable mention 
for All-American. Sam Gold- 
man, the only sophomore on the 
starting line-up, was a good fol- 
low man and could pass with the

best of the players. Brutus Baker, senior cen- 
ter, finished his college career as a member of 
the second All-Conference team. In his first 
year Brutus was All-Conference. Good at fol- 
lowing and defense, this center scored 217 
points. James Gurley, another tall man who 
devoted most of his time to following the ball, 
was a senior with plenty of experience. Edwin 
Welch, a sophomore sensation who could always 
be re'ied upon, is one of the most promising bas- 
ketball players ever to enter Howard. Herman 
Hodges, a veteran of many years experience, was 
always ready to lend a helping hand when the 
game got tough and rugged. Harlow Cather 
and Leonard Burton, two former Woodlawn 
cagers, were always ready to go in and give the 
game a little pep by their fast passing and 
clever ball handling. Last but not least comes 
Nathan Schenker, the sturdy eager who always 
gave the fans a show of brain and brawn work- 
ing at the same time. He was a favorite of the 
eager fans and always showed up to fine play- 
ing ability. 

Captain Dave Telford lead the Bulldogs with great 
interest playing excellent ball himself, and having

showed unusual ability in some of his outstanding

year the classes publish one edition of The Crimson, and then a 
loving cup is awarded to the editor whose issue is judged the 
best. This creates an interest in journalism and creative writing.

The Entre Nous is the annual publication of 
Howard College. The words "Entre Nous" are 
taken from the French language and mean "be- 
tween us." This is truly characteristic of our 
annual, as its contents portray the life and ac- 
tivities of the students on the Howard Campus. 
It is very difficult to place each person in the 
annual unless the staff has the full cooper?tion 
of both the students and faculty members. We 
have with much effort endeavored to place each 
person and organization. We realize the inad- 

vertencies of the book and can only ask that 
you will be considerate of our efforts. The Entre 
Nous has lived through these many years at How- 
ard, and will probably continue being the leading 
publication of this institution. It has been our 
aim to give to the students a concise view of 
our college days at Howard. If we haven't, we 
feel that we have failed in our aim. But, we 
hope that you will find much happiness, when 
turning through these pages of the Entre Nous, 
and in the years to come, treasure its contents.

of Trident are tapped from those Juniors who have maintained 
a high scholarship average in all their work and who are emi-

esteem in which they are held by faculty and students. The 
founders of Trident were aware that it would take more than 
ordinary ability to be active in the extra-curricular events of 
the college and, at the same time, maintain a high scholastic 
average. Its standards are high and those who attain it are 
eminently worthy of the honor.

The idea of creating one national basis of recognition for 
students, devoid of politics, initiation fees, and dues was 
conceived over five years ago. Thus Who's Who 
Among Students In American Universities and Colleges 
came about. Published annually is a compilation of 
biographies of the outstanding students in America. Only 
juniors, seniors and students in advanced work are se- 
lected. The purpose of Who's Who is to serve: as an 
incentive for students to get most out of their college 
careers, as a means of compensation to students for what 
they have already done, as a recommendation to the 
business world, and as a standard of measurement for 
students comparable to such agencies as Phi Beta Kappa 
and the Rhodes Scholarship Award. To be included in 
Who's Who, a student must have a combination of qual- 
ities to indicate that he is an asset to his school. The 
qualities are: Character, Leadership, Scholarship, and 
Potentialities of future usefulness to business and society.

oAlma 3Aater 

Oh. Howard. Alma Mater true, 

I love thy glorious name, deserving every honor due 

I o an unsullied fame. 

I'll love thee through each fleeting breath 

tor all that thou has done. 

And in the agonies of death 

He still thy loving son. 

Oh, Alma Mater, dear, thy life 

A treasure is to me: 

Thou. Phoenix fair, through flames and strife. 

Hast shown thy right to be. 

Since poverty has made thee rich 

And struggle made thee strong. 

I view thee in thy self-made niche. 
And burst to filial song. 

Oh. parent true, the future fair 

Must hold but good for thee. 

tor hope's fruition waits thee there 

In blest reality. 

And sons like thine will make thee shine 

II ith glory all thine own. 

And bring to thy maternal shrine 
Not gifts of gold alone. 

Words by Pk. c. w. Macon, 'i\. 

Musit by Prof. Paw de Lai way. 

A Sermon in a Seed 

When that small seed within the ground. 

Looks up at natures call and says, I will." 

Then pushes upward, darkness all around. 

It shows poor human souls. 

How God can say. "My child. 

Look up, and grow, and learn of me." 

Then when the human soul can say. I will." 
It too looks up through darkness all around. 
And grows — and learns. 

By Hal Bennett.

'Death on Yesterday 

And I saw Death on yesterday; 

It was not then a dreadful thing. 
Quietly IT came within 

And straightway was without again. 
The surgeon could not hold the Life, 

The Life itself seemed want to go. 
The interne saw the breathing — slow, 

Then looked again and it was gone. 

The surgeon made the cut; 
A clean, a beautiful gash, 
And on each side, the fat 
Laid bare, shown red gold 
Quivering there. 

And I saw Life come back anew; 

Come pleading, in the form to stay, 
And white robed nurses moved 

Softly and quickly. 
Death to them was old. 

The sleep giver made the form to sleep; 
From this sleep would it never wake again 

For Death, determined, had entered in. 

That form, that lump below, 

Is still a human form — 

That gash — those layers quivering, 

Then lying strangely without motion. 

And I saw Death on yesterday. 

It seemed indeed a quiet thing — 
A breathing, then — no beat. 

No breathing coming yet again. 

By Martha Taylor, c'40.

Many graduates of universities and colleges and others 
who have attended colleges, realize that their higher ed 
ucation is only foundational. 

Some of them, through making applications for posi- 
tions, have discovered that a general education is not 
enough. Modern business asks not only, "What do 
you know?" but "What can you do?" 

Many employers prefer college-trained young people. 
A Wheeler Secretarial training supplies the link be- 
tween a college training and a good position. 

Wheeler has helped scores of college graduates to bridge 
the gap and find a market for their college education.
